Past President, John Cullen, admires the Coat of Arms

Last year’s President, John Cullen, presented a specially prepared Pearse family Coat of Arms on behalf of the PPU to the school at a ceremony in the school on Monday March 14th. 2016. This was the first of a number of planned events to honour the memories of our famous past pupils, Patrick and Willie Pearse who, of course, were leading figures in the Easter Rising in 1916. Many other past pupils also participated and they will all be remembered and honoured suitably within the next few weeks. The presentation on March 14th was attended by 87 year old Noel Scarlette, grandson of the half brother of Patrick and Willie as well as Noel’s two sons and daughter in law. School Vice Principal Eddie Kelly gave a very interesting talk on the Pearse brothers. Below are some photographs from the event. Noel Scarlette receives a special mememto IMG_0317 IMG_0294
